Veterans Day at Universal Studios Florida

Happy early Veterans Day to all of our spectacular troops of America!

The 12th Annual Veterans Day Parade will take place over at Universal Studios Florida.

In honor of those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, Universal Orlando Resort’s Veterans Network, will march in a special parade at Universal Studios Florida on Veterans Day.

During the day there is a flag-raising ceremony and in previous years a private lunch for Veterans and their families was provided (please check with Universal Orlando Resort to see if it is still offered). Every year the parade begins around 11 a.m. with the flag-raising ceremony taking place in the New York area of the park.

Universal Studios One-Day Itinerary

Ride the movies and be a star! This is (or was) Universal Studios Florida’s claim to fame. You can still see remaining relics of the past, but things have shifted into dominant franchises of today. Now, I am not a stickler of living in the past, but I still do miss classic attractions such as the ORIGINAL King Kong ride KONGfrontation.
